LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1620, Wieckowski. Hazardous waste: contained gaseous material.
Under existing law, “contained gaseous material” is regulated by the Department of Toxic Substances Control as a hazardous waste. Existing law defines contained gaseous material as any gas that is contained in an enclosed cylinder or other enclosed container. Existing law exempts from the definition of contained gaseous material any exhaust gas, flue gas, or other vapor stream, regardless of the source, that is controlled by a permitted or exempted air pollution control device.
This bill would instead exempt from the definition of “contained gaseous material” any exhaust or flue gas, or other vapor stream, or any air or exhaust gas stream that is filtered or otherwise processed to remove particulates, dusts, or other air pollutants, regardless of the source.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 25110.11 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:

25110.11.
 (a) “Contained gaseous material,” for purposes of subdivision (a) of Section 25124 or any other provision of this chapter, means any gas that is contained in an enclosed cylinder or other enclosed container.
(b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a) of this section, “contained gaseous material” does not include any exhaust or flue gas, or other vapor stream, or any air or exhaust gas stream that is filtered or otherwise processed to remove particulates, dusts, or other air pollutants, regardless of the source.
